Microwave Chocolate Oatrage Snack Cake

READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by MuddyMommaPottery

this didn't turn out like a cake at all but it was pretty good esp considering how easy it is and it doesn't heat up the kitchen! i just dumped everything in my mixer and turned it on. used 1/2 butter shortening and 1/2 margine - all i had on hand. i really had my doubts when i put it in the microwave and realized there was no baking soda or powder or anything but turned out much better than i expected. it's more like a oatmeal chocolate chip bar type cookie than a cake which is fine w/ me. i skipped the nuts and only had one cup of chocolate chips so i didn't melt them on top which turned out fine. also, all the chips sank towards the bottom of the cake, maybe melting the ones on top will even out the chocolate flavor next time and make a nicer looking finished product. i also used quick oats which i'd definitely recommend. cooked it a total of 8 mins in my 1000w microwave w/ a turn table.
